Franz Kline’s Black and White series serves as the inspiration for this project. How can a highly digital and automated production process create a unique end-product without involving complex automation approaches? In close relation to the PhD thesis “Mass Customization Based on Economic Models and the Parallels to Unique Works of Art” the essence of this research project is to understand the relationship between physically uncontrollable aspects and highly controlled computational approaches. In the context of robotic painting issues of paint application enforce a playful customization combined with robotic precision.
